Embattled Public Enterprises Minister Lynne Brown says she won't resign over the Eskom debacle unless being told by the president to do so.
She says she does not believe she's solely responsible for the woes at the power utility.
Her remarks on the sidelines of a Parliamentary meeting come as the Eskom inquiry resumes on Tuesday afternoon, with disgraced former chief financial officer Anoj Singh expected to defend himself against allegations of state capture.
Brown says over the past two financial years, Eskom's finances have been in good shape.
She says its current liquidity problems are as a result of recent court challenges over tariff increases.
“Eskom is in a very, very difficult financial position. It's in a crisis position.”
Brown says the new board, appointed over the weekend, now has to stem the crisis.
But she won't voluntarily step down.
“If the president asks me to resign, I will do so.”
